Teen Mentors

mentorIn 2015, Big Brothers Big Sisters / Boys & Girls Club of Miramichi’s Teen Mentoring program started at Blackville School.

Teen Mentoring is a friendship-based, non-academic program that matches high school students with boys and girls in grades K-5, for one hour a week. A typical volunteer is a caring responsible teen who is in high school and has an interest in being a positive role model and friend to a child. Teen Mentors also provide someone to talk to and share the experiences of growing up.

Some activities included in the teen mentoring program include:

  • hanging out on the playground
  • playing games and sports
  • arts and crafts
  • reading
  • or just hanging out and chatting

Weekly visits take place on school grounds during school hours.  The Teen Mentoring program is a great experience for both mentor and ‘little’.
